"Full of creativity and rich in detail... the story is a classic of its kind." - El Mercurio

Mass dismissals following a mine shaft collapse force a young miner to head for the Chiflón del Diablo mine—the most deadly pit of all. As he toils in danger deep underground, his family faces a day-to-day struggle of uncertainty and anxiety. This exquisitely eloquent retelling of a story by the distinguished Chilean author Baldomero Lillo is played out in silence using simple marionettes fashioned from newsprint and chopsticks. Silencio Blanco creates their own language through gesture, making the audience’s imaginations active participants in the interpretation of the story. The emotional and dramatic impact of this adaptation takes puppetry to new levels as Silencio Blanco confronts the black silence of Chile’s mining history.
